Carlos and his team were a pleasure to work with. We needed new patios in our backyard mainly because we had standing water on one side and we would get water in our basement on the other side because the patio was not pitched away from the house. The first time Carlos came to our house, he quickly and confidently came up with a comprehensive plan installing new drainage to carry the water away fr...

Charles was super punctual, 7:30 am on the dot. We had a neighbor's tree fall on our backyard and also breaking through our fence. We wanted to get the job done before the upcoming snowstorm over the weekend. Charles was not only super courteous but he was able to give the best quote, was super responsive on calls and emails, and was able to schedule the job within 2 days of the first call. Overal...

I contacted Charles & Son at the beginning of September, and Carlos came to our house about a week later. We spent about 30 minutes looking at the front of the house and discussing everything that needs to be done. Carlos was very friendly, had lots of ideas, and when he left the understanding was that he was going to work up an estimate to send me. It is now two months later and I've not heard an...

Carlos was an important part of helping us with our overall design. He is very knowledgeable and he and his team take pride in their work . During the planning phase Carlos gave us a 3D visual of our project prior to starting which was so helpful to help tweak as we wanted to make our design even better. Without this visual we would not have been able to decide upon changes as easily as we did . C...

Carlos was hired to do a major landscape/ hardscape project for a new construction home. This included retaining walls, drainage, patio, driveway, cultured stone,etc. (Think close to $100,00) He did not finish the work and yet demanded to be paid in full. When I told him I would not pay him until he finished, he had the gall to sue me!!! Unresponsive, unprofessional and unethical. Stay Away!

These guys are perfectionists. Charles is also very creative and 100% trustworthy We met with nine top rated companies before picking Charles & Son (recommend by a friend in Upper Montclair as well as good reviews on Angie's List). He gave us a great computer generated design before they did the work. Huge crew with lots of equipment. As a producer who builds a lot of movie sets, I know a highly s...

The weather was not cooperating so they had to cancel twice. We were very happy with their work. They pulled out a huge tree stump and re landscaped the whole area. They also repaired my chain link fence which had been damaged by the fallen tree and repaved a portion of my driveway that was damaged.
